Statewide Reconciliation Forums

Reconciliation Victoria organises three statewide reconciliation forums each year. These are open to anyone who has an interest in progressing meaningful reconciliation in Victoria - all welcome!

We try to vary the themes, locations and speakers for each forum, with one residential forum in a regional location each year, plus two one-day forums in a metro Melbourne location. One of these metro Melbourne forums is combined with our Annual General Meeting.

Upcoming Forums

Saturday 6 April 2019 - Mullum Mullum Indigenous Gathering Place, Ringwood East

Coming Together: Reflecting on Reconciliation and Celebrating Culture
Saturday October 27, 2018
Darebin Creek Environment Centre (The Gleeson Centre) Darebin Parklands, Alphington

On Saturday 27 October, around 80 RecVic members and friends, gathered on Wurundjeri Country, at Darebin Parklands in Alphington to reflect on the past year of activity in the reconciliation space and to celebrate Culture in Victoria. 

The day included a campfire discussion involving local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members sharing their ideas on the proposal to establish an “Aboriginal Knowledge Council”, guided walks on the Spiritual Healing Trail led by Uncle Trevor Gallagher, a moving performance by Wergaia & Wempa Wempa singer-songwriter Alice Skye, our AGM and a Special General Meeting that endorsed the proposed rule changes that include a shift to a skills-based Board.

A full program of the day is available here.
